Today, on All Saints’ Day, we celebrate that communion with all those unnamed saints who during their life on earth discovered the utter goodness at the core of their being, and who now see God face-to-face.
During the month of November, we will honour all those whose names are found in the Book of Remembrance. May the souls of the faithfully departed rest in peace and enjoy the fullness of the resurrection.
Jesus reminds us that disconnecting our beliefs in God from relationship with others is not a full understanding of our relationship with God.
We are both baptised and sent to others. It is what Pope Francis calls ‘the church on the move.’ This special Sunday helps us to realize that we are each other’s sister and brother.
Many blessings and best wishes on you and your loved ones this Thanksgiving weekend, as you celebrate the bounties of the harvest!
